The center of York is very small. We did the sightseeing on a later day in York. Because the center is very small, we had already seen a lot. Still the explanation in the bus was very nice. Especially when we had a bus with a lady who was going to explain everything instead of a tape.

A great way to see the city.

Good value for money and a frequent service. The hosts on the bus were knowledgeable and made everything interesting and did not have to read from a script which was very good. It is a great way to see the city and suggest you do a lap to start with and then choose where to get off and on. The only real negative was having booked on line, the email categorically states that you must have a printed copy which as we were on holiday was a challenge! Fortunately the Travelodge we were staying at kindly printed it off for us otherwise this would have been a real challenge. In times where you can board a flight with just an email this was disappointing.

Best way to explore the city

29th Aug 2018 A day trip with my mom. York is a beautiful city by itself. The audio did not work on the bus that afternoon the company was efficient enough to have a live tour guide throughout the journey. Not sure with the name of the tour guide but he was excellent he knew almost every thing. His knowledge was up too mark. He was kind enough to click photos of each family during intervals and very sweet with kids. this is the best way to explore the bus driver was very sweet too he helped us with directions well. The staff is very sweet and friendly. They do they job in a very positive and a happy way. Many thanks to the staff and the company. Our trip to York was memorable. With this review hope the company recognize the staff and they effort put in day to day. Thank you.
